in the national institutes of health harry reid said save saving a child with cancer is not his priority. why would he want to do that? take a look. >> why would we want to do that? i have 1100 people at the air force base sitting home. they have a pru fu problems of their own. to have someone of your intelligence suggest such a thing maybe means you're irresponsible. reckless. >> why would i want to help one child with cancer? why would i want to do that? harry, i can think of a few reasons. open your mind. that's not all. we are seeing first hand the devastating impact this liberal shutdown is having on american heroes yesterday and today. veterans had to move barricades to gain access to the world war ii memorial in the nation's capital. the republican led house passed legislation that would fund parts of the government including national parks. are the democrats going to take it up in the senate? the chances are slim to none. earlier today reince priebus announced he and the rnc is willing to keep the world war ii memorial but in typical fashion, that's not negotiable. democrats called it

things that are important. one, a one year delay of obama care. that's their answer to harry reid and senate democrats stripping that defund effort we heard so much about. the second amendment is a repeal of a medical device tax that helped to fund obama care. it sounds like a small issue. why are republicans putting that in there? because senate democrats voted to repeal that tax, don't like it, they're trying to put political pressure on democrats not to flip flop on the little medical device tax. if they flip flop, harry reid has procedural problems. they're trying to put on political pressure. they'll do one more thing, pass a companion bill to fund the pentagon and troops in the event of shutdown so troops aren't left without pay. >> we heard from senator harry reid say he is not dealing with any piece of legislation that does anything to obama care. what are you hearing from senate staffers. >> reporter: he said that. they're saying the same thing. procedurally it is pretty interesting, we think we know where this is probably headed based on the arcane procedure baked into t
